"libextractor is a library used to extract meta-data from files of 
arbitrary type. It is designed to use helper-libraries to perform the 
actual extraction, and to be trivially extendable by linking against 
external extractors for additional file types.

The goal is to provide developers of file-sharing networks or 
WWW-indexing bots with a universal library to obtain simple keywords to 
match against queries. libextractor contains a shell-command "extract" 
that, similar to the well-known "file" command, can extract meta-data 
from a file an print the results to stdout. "

Apparently they want to achieve it without writing the code themselves. 
Maybe we should do that too !

We'll add a plugin if someone provides a good one, if that's the question.
I've never heard of Matroska before, and the format looks complicated.
Writing plugins for LE is quite simple (if you know C), so if you want to
write one, go for it.
